If you enjoyed Chris Pratt in Jurassic World — judging by its early box office success, you probably did — then get ready for more of him in the future.
Jurassic World broke the record for Universal’s all-time debut with $18.5 million. It is set to make over $170 million this weekend, which would be third all-time behind the two Avengers movies.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly,Chris Pratt was asked if he had signed on for a sequel. The actor answered, “I am. They have me for I think 38 movies or something.” This was the second of two interviews Pratt did with the magazine, one on the set of the film during production and the second 10 months later.
If there was any actor fans would love to see 38 times playing the same character, it would be Chris Pratt.
Aside from the obvious reasons for a sequel like money, it seems that Pratt is in this for all the right reasons, and we cannot wait to see what further charm he can bring to Jurassic World. Pratt has been landing big role after big role; he is the lead in two major franchises, and is rumored to head another (Indiana Jones). But when it comes to Jurassic World, Pratt has always been a diehard fan. Also, Pratt discusses how director Colin Trevorrow pitched him the project and how this movie is different than its predecessors.
“When we pick up on our movie, it’s not this exciting park that no one can believe,” he said. “I just liked the idea that the park is open and also attendance is falling off. In this world, dinosaurs have been around for 20 years. So no one thinks they’re fascinating anymore. Kids are bored with them. Instead of being mesmerized by a T. rex, they’re at the park and they’re looking at their iPhones.”
One of the younger actors in the cast, Nick Robinson, told Cinema Blend that he would be thrilled to make another, but said it wouldn’t happen soon.
Chris Pratt has had a crazy year with Guardians of the Galaxy and the closing of Parks and Recreation. Pratt has met numerous famous stars, but he said he was most excited to meet Steven Spielberg, who directed the first two movies in this franchise.
With the massive success of Jurassic World thus far and the star’s signing on for future movies, it is practically a guarantee that we should be hearing an announcement of future movies in the coming days.
